Everyone has made some creative quilt segments and it has been fun seeing how each person interrupted the steps and made them their own.
We have slashed, cut, created unruly fabric, re-purposed crumbs and spiced it up with color. Now it’s time to put it all together into a completed quilt. For this step I’m thinking of a word
Serendipity is the gift of finding valuable or agreeable things.
Put your quilt top or quilt top pieces on the wall, step back. Start arranging your pieces into a look that makes you feel good. Maybe take a photo of your quilt top or your various quilt top options. What does it need to make it “pop”?
Should you have a border? Solid or maybe Sawtooth?
Does it need more accent color or pattern?
Maybe some applique or embellishments?
What is your top missing? Or what does it need to be complete? How does it make you feel?
You be the judge.
Use the gift of Serendipity to complete your quilt and most importantly have fun.

My Final Posting for LibRR2 --- Since I knew where the final Step 4 was going to take us I decided to use Serendipity and complete my AAQI quilt.
After placing my mini quilt on the wall, taking a few photos, walking away and coming back just to look at the quilt I decided the quilt needed some "bling". So I added a few square purple beads. I continued my thought that the quilt looked like it was exploding and added the beads to accent that feeling. I then completed the quilt with hand quilting.
I'm calling my quilt Celebrate. The liberated log cabin seems to be exploding with excitement. I found it interesting that during the time frame this quilt was created, the Federal Government pledged to spend more money for Alzheimer's Research. Since day one this mini LibRR2 quilt was earmarked to become an AAQI quilt, it seems the quilt is celebrating the exciting news to help find a cure for this devastation disease.
The quilt measures 9 x 8 inches
I look forward to seeing every ones completed LibRR2 quilt. Have fun with your Serendipity!
